Installation suggestions (Grand Cherokee)

1. The equipped self-tapping mounting screws are too quick (3/4″). I used 1″ sheet steel screws as a substitute, drilling a 3/32″ pilot holes. Drill slowly and thoroughly in order to not drill previous the outer layer and into the hood. There is a couple of 1″ space between the outer layer and the hood so that you there’s loads of further room.

2. The equipped template positions the sunshine meeting too low. I discarded the template and mounted the sunshine in order that the screw areas have been all on the protruding a part of the hood (see picture above). The backside of the lamp is even with the underside of the hood insulation.

3. Several of the hood insulation plastic fasteners should eliminated with a purpose to feed the wire harness throughout the hood. New fasteners are equipped with the sunshine equipment. Be cautious when eradicating the prevailing fasteners, the hood insulations dents and scratches simply. If you should not have a fastener removing instrument you possibly can fastidiously pry underneath the fasteners with a large blade screwdriver after which use a pair of plyers to seize the surface of the fastener ring and slowly work/pull the fastener out.

4. The directions name for chopping slits within the hood insulation to run the wiring from the lamp over to the battery. I merely ran the wiring beneath the lamp meeting and beneath the underside fringe of the insulation, and from there up and over the left facet of the lamp and throughout the center of the hood and right down to the motive force’s facet nook, after which to the battery.

5. Remove the fuse from the lamp harness earlier than hooking up the facility and floor wires. Reinsert the fuse and test operation of hood lamp.
